“I am a firm believer that people organizing at a local level is what achieves change and I think what we’ve failed to see is an adequate response from the government and what we’ve seen instead of that is local people saying you know what we’re going to stand up for the most vulnerable people in our society for people who are elderly, people who are not only going to need physical help during this crisis but with everything...”
“We recognise that injustice doesn’t affect everyone equally and whilst we’re all at risk of Covid-19, there are some people who are more vulnerable and need greater support from the community.”
“The basic idea is to coordinate care efforts for people who are self-isolating, especially if they are part of a more at-risk demographic including the elderly, disabled and people with other pre-existing health issues.”
